Meeting Materials 2019

Meeting Materials 15 December,
– online public event-

23rd Meeting Materials
What began in 1997 as an annual meeting for the Dutch materials science community, existing of a dozen researchers, students and our industrial partners has blossomed into an invigorating event about innovations in materials. This year we again expect over 300 participants, representatives from SME’s to renowned industrial manufacturing companies, and from international universities and research institutes.

Different than usual and earlier announcements, this year the M2i Conference will take place virtually.
In consultation with representatives of the intended venue (the Leeuwenhorst in Noordwijkerhout), we have evaluated the impact of the Covid-19 measures recommended by the RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) and the Dutch government on our Conference. Under these conditions, the possibilities for networking would be severely limited and the Conference would not meet its purpose of bringing together the Dutch materials community. For this reason, we have decided that the M2i Conference and Meeting Materials 2020 will take place virtually.

This year the Program consists of interesting workshops and presentations and of course a lot of opportunities to expand your network.

Meeting Materials is free of charge and open for everyone who is interested in materials development. The conference is an opportunity to learn about the latest insights and developments in the field of innovative and smart materials, along with ways in which these materials can stimulate economic progress and a sustainable society. This day is co-organised with 4TU.HTM and supported by the Bond voor Materialenkennis (BvM).

Additive Manufacturing Design Contest for Young Engineers

During its annual conference Meeting Materials, M2i will organise an open Additive Manufacturing Design Contest for young engineers. We therefore challenge all young engineers and researchers to design a novel product, to be printed with wire arc additive manufacturing.
